New EP: Zenker Brothers - The Schyren (Ilian Tape)

The Zenker Brothers keep the good stuff coming: Out now on Ilian Tape is The Schyren, the brothers' first full release as a duo since 2015. Who says christmas comes but once a year?

Featured as a main event by Red Bull Music Academy, Dario and Marco decribe their set of three broken-beat cuts as having 'theatrically loose Munich vibrations.' (Having been to Munich before, we can full-heartedly confirm the 'thetrical' bit.)

All this and a new sub label too? Right! Ilian Tape just launched the Ilian Skee Series featuring releases by the mystical Skee Mask (who's first ever EP has the distinction of winning a whopping 4.3/5 on Resident Advisor).

It's official: In Zenker Country, every day is christmas day.

New EP: A Sagittariun - Vanishing Point / The Pathway (Hypercolour)

Out on on Hypercolour on June 16th will be A Sagittariun's latest and greatest: Vanishing Point EP!

Following his acclaimed albums Dream Ritual and Elasticity as well as 15 EPs and taking in 'blistering 140BPM techno, breakbeat IDM, and ambient dub with ease', Vanishing Point takes us on a crossover journey.

Two original tracks — Vanishing Point and The Pathway — are accompanied by a remix by Matrixxman, who pushes the original down a long dark tunnel for a growling and reverberating techno overhaul.

Sounds serious!

It might have been out for a while but great music is great music, so here is Andrea's slick showing for London's notorious NTS Radio. Having been invited by show host Dark Sky, Andrea once more proofs he is not only a master of techno but he also excells in the art of ambient. It's a beaut!

New Tracks: Cesare vs Disorder's Handywork

We don't know about you but to Cesare vs Disorder, Life is the Art of Drawing without an Eraser. At least when it is the name of his new vinyl only 12" and it's out on Handcraftet Label! Life is the Art of Drawing without an Eraser (don't you just love how that sounds!) features Cesare's bestie Rick Maia and remixes by Priku and Melodie.

And you'd better be quick or your life will become the Art of Living without a New Record - those suckers are moving fast.

Mixmag Poll: Most influential Techno Labels of the past Decade

Techno authority Mixmag was looking for the most influential labels of the past decade and found what we already knew: There's more to techno than repetitive 4/4 foundations and booming kick drums and Ilian Tape fits the bill!

Yes dear friend, uncork that champagne, hand out those cigars and rock that flashy party hat you bought for that NYE2000 party you never attended, as Dario and Marco Zenker's label is joining the ranks of Tresor, Clone, Soma, OstgutTon and R&S in the top 15!

We are so proud, we could wear two party hats at once... <3

But hold your party hats, there's more! Mixmag also published a feature on a decade of Ilian Tape (which is a lot of tape if you think about it). Read all about how the boys boostrapped their vision, how they got changed by it and where it might lead them. (Hint: Anywhere, with or without party hats)

Congratulations Dario and Marco. Here's to ten more!

New Remix: Lurka - Beater (Stenny Remix)

Stenny has drawn some serious remix blood lately. That's par for the course for a track titled Beater and - great news - it's out on Timedance!

Here Stenny 'warps the drums from the original into his trademark cavernous rhythms, while dread filled drones circle in the background'. Go Stenny! And please, Beat(er) us baby… one more time.

New Album: Tilliander - Compuriddim LP Preview (IDEAL)

TM404 is at it again! With a new album just out, he is upping the ante with the six track strong Compuriddim LP released on Sweden's IDEAL Recordings under his Tilliander moniker:

  • What the press says: 'Less-is-more efficiency, constant movement within space'
  • What he says: 'Apparently my new dubby LP at Ideal is out already'
  • What we (and Oliver) say: 'Please sir, can I have some more?' (and we think that says it all)
  • What you say: 'Yes, yes. but WHERE CAN I GET IT?'

Well, fear not dear friend as you can buy it (and the 200 strong limited red vinyl edition) here.
